Cell-specific transcriptome in the hypothalamus of diet-induced obese mice (Prof. Dr. Peter Kovacs, completed)

The potential role of certain genes in different brain cells (astrocytes, neurons mainly in hypothalamus) in the development of obesity is being examined in this research project. Especially the interplay of obesity-risk-genes and neuronal brain cells as well as food-intake and energy metabolism.
